The first quarter of 2008 represents 16.7% of lifetime
contributions made to ActBlue since 2004. This percentage is a 1.5%
increase from last quarter and sets ActBlue on a path to raise $100
million for Democrats by election day. 

Total Donors
2007 Q4 41,628
2008 Q1 54,918
Lifetime 357,341

The first quarter of 2008 represents 15.4% of all ActBlue donors since
2004, and an increase of 3.7% in donors from last quarter. As the
number of donors skyrockets, we want the number of fundraising pages to
soar as well.  You can help us reach our goal of adding 10,000 new
fundraising pages by election day by starting your own fundraising page
and reaching out to your personal network to raise money for Democrats.

Average Contribution
size made to ActBlue
2007 Q4 $134.08
2008 Q1 $129.12
Lifetime $118.42

The average contribution size for the first quarter of 2008 reflects a 4.1%
decrease in the average contribution from last quarter.  This decline
shows that individuals and organizations can create powerful
fundraising networks using small donations, which is what ActBlue is
all about.
